I've been in a relationship with my boyfriend for a total of 5 years. Over this time period, our relationship has gone NOWHERE! It's stll in the same position as it was when we first started dating. For the last 2 years, I've been really pushing him to make a move. This year, I went so far as to say, "If you don't propose to me by the end of this year, I'm leaving you." Since I said that, he claims he's going to do it. But, guess what, that was the case 2 YEARS AGO! I honestly don't believe he's going to do it this year either!!! It's November already and he doesn't seem to be saving or anything. I really don't want to leave him, but I'm 25 and he's 27. I'm ready to settle down and be an actual family. I only have one child and he's 6. I definitely want another baby, but I'm not having one over the age of 30. I also want my kids to be somewhat close in age. My son is in school now, that way I can have my bonding time with the new baby and my son won't feel like I'm "ignoring" him. I had it all planned out. I just don't know what to do to get him to at least propose to me!! I mean, it's not like we have to get married right away. I even told him that. I really feel like he's scared of responsibility. He won't move in with me either! He still lives at home with his parents! Then, when I brought up the fact that I want us to live together, he told me, "I want to live on my own for at least a year when I do move." What the hell is going on here? I always tell him he needs a teenager girlfriend, that way he won't have to do much to satisfy her. It's getting to the point where I am ready to leave him. I don't want to waste my time with someone who doesn't want to move forward and COMMIT to me. What's the point of sticking around?? I ask myself that question all the time. And the truth is, it's because I love him. I really do. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place at this point. I want to stay, but I want a commitment. For some reason, that's so hard for him to do. In any way! There's nothing that solidifies our longevity. Am I being too pushy? Or does he even want to marry me?? Will he ever take the next step?
